Describe the idea!
We have developed a material made out of biproducts from potatoes and starch cultivation that is biodegradable. Our vision is to replace single use disposable articles made of plastic and paper. The purpose of our products is to reduce forest debris, landfills and create a more sustainable future for animals, nature and society.
Who are you?
Our team consists of three members. One mechanical engineer, one material engineer and then me, mechanical engineer student.
My previous work experience consists of an internship in Colombia and a part time job at Sony.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
I will work with the thermal tests and work on the production aspect for most.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
By the end of the summer I hope that we have all the test approved, the production aspect is solved and the budget for the project gets established in a more detail matter.
